ISP Voneus Brings Faster Wireless Broadband to Dalton Piercy

Voneus-Antenna-Outside-House

Residents in the rural Hartlepool borough village of Dalton Piercy (County Durham), which is home to almost 300 people, can now access faster broadband speeds of up to 45Mbps after UK ISP Voneus deployed a new Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) network. Previously, some locals often struggled to get fixed line speeds of above 1Mbps.

The provider, supported by investment from Macquarie Capital, currently holds a “near term” target to cover 100,000 homes in rural areas to their new full fibre network (here). But they do still deploy some FWA services, such as in locations where the economics of doing FTTP would be harder to achieve, although trying to get even basic package and price details out of their website remains frustratingly difficult.

According to the press release, Openreach had no plans to upgrade the local connections, and another provider is claimed to have promised to bring fibre connections to the area but “reneged on the project” (we know a number of AltNets are targeting Hartlepool itself, but we haven’t yet seen any firm plans for Dalton Piercy – until now).

Zoe Day, Head of community engagement at Voneus, said: “We are thrilled that Kylie [see video below] and the rest of Dalton Piercy are now live with superfast broadband and we look forward to bringing more villages and towns in County Durham up to speed in the near future.”

    Plenty of 4G coverage there so clearly 1Mbps was sufficient for those on it.

    Why even entertain these press releases? seems like an ideal time to question why they’d still be deploying an 5ghz FWA access network and not looking to the future with 60ghz.

    If the backhaul isn’t available, seems short sighted of Voneus to fit 5ghz kit to customers houses.

    Problem with this people don’t want 5g mast to be installed. They worried about their views and property value.

    So they should be happy with 1mbps.

    I don’t think that antenna is installed properly? Should be under the eves/gutter or maybe located on the chimney if there is one. Just not head height?

    If a van parks in her drive/front road her Internet is likely to get blocked !

    I suppose its a good interim solution. All these NIMBY’s opposing FTTP/5G deployment should be permanently ignored for the good and benefit of all.
